The interview Oprah Winfrey conducted with Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry caused quite a stir. Now the host of the show looks back on it in a live conversation and shares her impressions.
In an interview with host Nancy O’Dell, Oprah Winfrey spoke about an interview that was frequently discussed with Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, and which first aired in early March. “I had no idea that it would have such an echo that it had and still has,” said the American speaker. “Our common intention was true. They wanted to be able to tell their story as honestly as possible,” Winfrey continued.
In a sensational interview, Duchess Meghan argued, among other things, that concerns about skin color were expressed within the Royal Family before the birth of her son Archie, who will soon be celebrating his second birthday. Meghan’s openness greatly “surprised” her, Winfrey explained now in retrospect. This was already clear from her reactions during the conversation, for example when she asked Meghan with an incredible expression after serious accusations, “Excuse me?”
“Open, vulnerable and true”
The interview was not so powerful because of her questions, but because the interlocutor was willing to be “open, vulnerable and truthful”. In an interview, Duchess Meghan literally stated, “There was talk of how dark our baby’s skin would be.” However, Prince Harry’s wife did not want to reveal who allegedly made the relevant statements;
Former actress and Queen’s grandson Harry lives with Archie in California and no longer works for the British Crown. After the so-called “Megxit”, they first settled in Canada and then directly in Los Angeles, now they have bought a house in Santa Barbara. Their second child, a daughter, should be born in the summer.
